Snaresbrook station to go step-free

Transport for London has announced that Snaresbrook station is to be converted to a step-free station as part of a £200m plan to upgrade 13 Tube stations by 2022.

What exactly the work will mean is not yet clear, but it will either have to mean installation of a lift by the street entrance to the London-bound entry, or two lifts to give access to the footbridge over the tracks. The ticket hall will also need work to eliminate the steps from Station Approach. TFL’s definition of “step-free” means either lifts or ramps and excludes escalators.
